Can 3/4" bandsaw blades do 12" resaw ?

Are there any 3/4" bandsaw blades that can resaw without drift 12" stock on my 14" Jet bandsaw (with a 6" riser block) ?

Or,
can i modify my 14" Jet bandsaw to take a 1" wide resaw blade ?

I have one 12" high resaw job to do - but it's 2500 feet of soft western red cedar, and must be very close to a straight cut.

What's the width of the blade? That's a big part of it. I switched to thicker blades (.032) a while back and have been able to resaw 6" red oak with no problems on a 1/4" blade. True story.

yeah man, no sweat. You may have to search around, or find a local shop that will make one for you. Chaincarver Steve hooked me up with his buddy, who runs a saw blade sharpening business and he made me two bandsaw blades. I'll never buy another one from anywhere else now. They totally changed the bandsaw I have. Good luck!
